Snap, Crackle, Crunch, Pop… Crepitus!

What is the deal with all those snaps, pops, crackles, and crunches when I am moving? Does this mean I should be worried about those joints?

Simple Answer: If you have noisy joints without instances of pain, the simple answer here is NO! These snaps and pops are known and crepitus, where either air or fluid is moving through joints, or tendons and ligaments are moving over/across bony structures.  If you’re creaking or cracking, good news: You’re in motion!

Go deeper: In a study regarding the clinical implications of knee crepitus in those with knee osteoarthritis, the results were quite interesting:

Pazzinatto et al. (2019) found that those with knee crepitus had lower self-reported scores (or subjective difficulty) with the functional tasks performed.

However, data shows that there were no objective clinical differences in strength or function from those without knee crepitus. Those with crepitus were scoring about the same in functional tasks as those without crepitus 

Remember that crepitus can sound a bit scary, but if it isn’t causing you pain, carry on in good health and movement!

What’s next: Remember that you have a team of physical therapists and personal trainers that can help you evaluate and understand your snaps, cracks, and pops, especially if they are painful! Please reach out to to be paired with a provider for a free consultation!
